Description

Houston Press' Description

Ciao Bello is Tony Vallone's classic Italian eatery, where you won't find any foam, foie or fancy tasting menus. The food and atmosphere are more comfortable and homey than Vallone's much lauded flagship restaurant, Tony's, but many diners flock there for just that reason. There's a bar in which guests can sit and watch football games while they eat, and though most of the dishes are what people would consider gourmet, the prices are such that a family can enjoy a meal out without breaking the bank. The food has greatly improved since the Galleria area restaurant first opened, thanks in large part to chef Bobby Matos, who creates the traditional Italian that Vallone cherishes while adding his own innovative touches to the recipes and plating. And using classic ingredients, Matos continues to develop menu items of his own that truly show off his range as a chef and the ability of the Tony's brand to adapt to a changing food scene. Whether you want pasta with bolognese sauce or something more unusual, Ciao Bello serves up some of the best in town.
